Lyrics

Mama said if I wanna eat I gotta work
Mama said if I wanna read I gotta learn
Mama said keep it 100 on the turf
And boy leave the treasures that you earned on the earth
That's what mama said (yeah that's what mama said)

Mama told me don't trip, mama told me cautious
Mama told me no lip, especially when she be talking
Mama Yinka showed drip, her wrist game got me nauseous
Mama got a new whip, coz the old one was quite boring
Mama got a few orphans that she's taken into her house
Mama Yinka losing her spouse didn't mean to go and chase clout
She was broke but didn't break out
We was hopeless thinking like how we ever gonna make it mama said now
Trust in God and solemnly vow
Don't let hope fade so we both prayed
Mama showed me the old days
Old friends tried to run the streets, mama told me look both ways
Mama made sure her son would eat, never hungered or go stray
Mama told me don't ever cheat, love God till your old grey
Mama told me if I wanna eat I gotta work
Mama took me down to church prayed for me now I perch
Mama gave all she had and the money out her purse
If I ever went missing she would search

My mama a prophet for real
I gotta be honest and deal
Mama would see what I did before I done it
My mama has something to seal
I remember shorty she bad I wanted her bad her body was real
Mama dreaming now she telling me chill
How she know it I guess God has reveal whenever she kneels
Wake up in the morning cutting a meal
Make it when I'm yawning not a big deal
I brought Sophie over head over heels
How you took her in was something surreal
Mama Yinka got skills Mama Yinka so trill
Mama Yinka be cutting Mama Yinka no frills
You still build real deal goals Mama you a real deal so
How your loving still will flow You are not an ill willed soul
If I had a mil we'll go, anywhere you feel real flow
Mama you the wheel you know, until I die I'll give you most
Mama told me if I wanna eat I gotta work
Mama took me down to church prayed for me now I perch
Mama gave all she had and the money out her purse
If I ever went missing she would search
